Traffic on a historic bridge. Toss in the charm of the Columbia River. Not sure when the traffic dissipates. Perhaps a conversation piece. Overall, it’s still simply a bridge.

Taking I-5 is always a gamble. Take 205 if you can. Just as fast to get across the river. Much faster to Portland International.

A unique way to experience the width of the Columbia river and get glimpse of what happens when bridge is opened for ships.

I have lived in Vancouver for 15 years, and finally took my first walk over this bridge. It was interesting to view the river and Mt. Hood from the bridge.

We passed it today when we were heading to Vancouver, I haven't seen many bridges in my life but I liked it.
